A nationwide online and telephone service that helps people to take part in dementia research studies launches in Wales today. Join Dementia Research promises to accelerate the pace of dementia research in Wales by allowing people with and without dementia to register their interest in studies, and helping researchers find the right participants at the right time.
Mark Drakeford, Welsh Minister for Health and Social Services will make the announcement during a visit to the Wales Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) at Bangor University.
Professor Drakeford said:
“Welsh universities and health boards are collaborating in world-class dementia research and I hope that by working with people living with dementia and other volunteers, we can gain a better understanding of this condition.
“Join Dementia Research is great step forward as we work to make Wales a more dementia-friendly nation. I want to encourage people to consider volunteering for this important work.”
